First things first when it comes to Phil Kessel. Some of us may have been a little wrong when it came to forecasting the Maple Leafs forward’s play entering Toronto’s first-round playoff series with the Bruins in the spring. Kessel scored four goals and added two assists during the series, which included two goals and an assist in Game 7. The Leafs eventually lost the series, but that was far from Kessel’s fault. He had himself a very good series. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, have you seen Kessel’s Team USA glamour shot? The speedy forward was among the 48 players invited to USA Hockey’s orientation camp, which apparently included taking some head shots. Kessel’s came out awesome. The Minnesota native saw his photo make its way around the Internet on Tuesday, including some fantastic parodies. See the photo and some of its parodies below. Phil Kessel, show us your "GRR!" face. #NailedIt http://t.co/jIvPjMMOpa— Joe Yerdon (@JoeYerdonPHT) August 27, 2013 Kessel http://t.co/0rVCMzWYqZ— Ray Shero (@Evil_Shero) August 27, 2013 Phil Kessel, hangin' in the Louvre. #MonaPhil http://t.co/YTExupj5U3— Dan Ryan (@bruinshockeynow) August 27, 2013 For @jocethetip : Phil Kessel, Harlequin's latest leading man http://t.co/lNdtyFLie0— Wyatt Arndt (@TheStanchion) August 27, 2013 Filed under: Headlines, Mike Cole, NHL, Olympics, Toronto Maple Leafs
